[laughter] so i did have this very -- i certainly had a personal stake in that. so i was very proud and 10 pleasantly surprised on that front. i also want to look at this deeper. but it feels to me like this time the disconnect between the voting was not as big as it had been in the past. suggesting that people were saying different things. it feels like in this race, the polling suggested that that was kind of the margin and we won by a margin and we were fairly close to the polling. i think if that is true, it's very good news for us as we go forward with this kind of thing. i think there was a tendency for us to feel that we really had to get very high numbers. so that was good news in my world. >> the staff said one thing,
that happens. i next caller in anaheim, california. caller: >> the first part of my question, i have two daughters currently attending private school. i this move them from a public school. my cost is approximately $30 per student day -- there were two teachers, it was a well-known program, private instruction, the average class size was 10 students. more days per school year than the public school, and so forth -- now they're getting older and i am moving them into the public school system. i got a note that said, if your children are absent or are not there during the course of the year for a given day, the school does not receive money for the days they are not there -- we were hoping we would make a country should recover their costs of $40 a student day. how is it that at a public level where they have a fraction of the number of days of instruction per year and hours per day are shorter, they are asking for $40 per student day where they were getting a better quality of education at $30 a student day at a private level? how is it in a state like california where we are going broke
-to-face held to navigate of this. the enrollment process, the state of california loan. here we go. california alone as ties they will need 25,000 reps' speaking as many as 13 languages to run their insurance exchange. think about that. furthermore, there is no one size fits all exchange. different states with different insurance markets in different eligibility requirements for medicaid. obamacare just keeps getting better. and we did not even get into the laws 20 different taxes that will cost taxpayers about $700 billion over just the next decade. obamacare. so far so good. the fiscal cliff negotiations under way. business leaders go to washington meeting republican and democratic house leaders. but is what is good for business really good for the country? the "a-team" next. the government tracking terrorists, criminals, and students. a texas school district wants to attract their students. big brother not a big hit with the students. protests are up in egypt over president more seize power grab. will the united states sit by quietly as he makes his move to become their leader? and is sure
be california and states like new york, president obama starts with 237 electoral votes. governor romney starts with 1919 electoral votes from states like texas and georgia that traditionally vote for the republicans. if you look at the easiest path for the president, because he had 237 at that start he has more pathways to that magical 270. his easiest path would be if he were to win florida. that would mean he would only have to win one of the remaining eight battleground states to get to 27 0. governor romney has a tougher path. if he were to win florida and then also to win ohio and virginia and north carolina that's four of the biggest states, that would still only get him to 266 electoral votes. he'd need one of the remaining five battleground states, scott, to get to 270. >> pelley: john, thank you. john, bob, norah o'donnell and our entire campaign 2012 team will bring you election night coverage beginning the moment the first polls close tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. a week ago tonight hurricane sandy crashed ashore. we learned today that the death toll is up to 119 in nine state

it to their advantage in states like illinois. california is a whole different story where you have an independent commission drawing the lines there. it really will dramatically shape control of congress. >> i was simply going to make the point about illinois. the viewers don't think it's only the republicans who are redrawing districts. democrats did the exact same thing in illinois, and we'll see what the results are. sometimes they draw districts expecting a certain outcome and the voters surprise them. >> brown: while we're talking about the how, because earlier we talked about the senate in a kind of bigger picture. stu, remind us about the house situation. >> all 435 seats are up in the house but not all 435 are competitive. only about 70 or so are really worth watching for the chance of one party to steal a seat from the other party. the democrats need 25 seats in order toigate majority and presumably reinstall california, nancy pelosi as speaker be as she once was. that seems unlikely. the democrats have said we have enough seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington,

their own supermajorities in both chambers in california and illinois. in the state of carolina, in the state of north carolina they gained a republican supermajority in the house and senate. in georgia, they appear in georgia, they appear one independent away from having one in the senate. with might winning 24 states on wednesday, no one expected the president's coattails to turn blue. republican gains in the deep, red south is kind of like running up the score. down the ballot has less to do with coattails than with parkas than with hoods. against the bitter cold that defines february and march. outside the virginia state capitol in richmond. voters are looking for leadership at all levels of governance and they vote in changes. they are not stupid. elections have consequences and they go both ways. if you think running a restaurant is hard try running four. fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've eve
